I did the cold shower yesterday, but took the melatonin at 9 pm (forgot to do it earlier). Slept like a bag of rocks until well after 2 am, woke briefly to hit the bathroom, and slept more until the alarm went off. Did I hot flash? I don't know. It's possible I did not, which would be awesome.
151.8 this morning and ketones inching toward "small" from "trace". Here's yesterday:
- tea with cream
- the usual supplements (cut down on some of the arcane stuff like CoQ10 and Gingko)
- 4 pieces of cheese
- about 1 T of coconut flakes
- 1 more piece of cheese
- roast chicken
- salad with blue cheese dressing
- about 1T of dried cherries
- 1 square of dark chocolate
- 1 salted dark chocolate almond
I think that was it. I skipped breakfast again this morning, and have olives with me, and may go get lunch as well. I still feel swollen, so there's more water there to be lost.
